sbaird A friend used the spray cans for his fenders and doors, it turned out really nice, not as much texture as the hurculiner! I like the herculiner for the tub but for exterior the rustoleum spray cans work great... the Martin Senour black stone guard paint works nicely as well.

Fowler10 I was at Lowes an saw the bed liner spray can has anyone used the quart can with a roller? I have used herculiner in truck beds but it has way to much rubber in it for this application. Iam going to paint some half doors but didn't know if roller would cover with less streaks than the ole spray can. Thanks for any advice!

Mike5087 Sprayed the brushbar/ bullbar whatever ya wanna call it yesterday. Turned out nice, except I wish I woulda spent more time prepping. There are still a few rough spots. I have to take it off again when I get my bumper so I'm Gunna try and fix it then. Overall I'm very happy with it. Put up pics in a bit

jdhallissey I used dupli-color with kevlar-- the stuff is really good. I rolled it on actually mostly brushed one coat on and it covered perfectly. I am going to make it thicker in the high traffic areas. The stuff is strong tho. I just did it over the weekend so I will have to report back in a month to give a detailed breakdown of it.

TrentJeep I used it for my grill and fender caps. Works really well.

jgano23 i am not a fan of the rustoleum spray on liner. i used it on my rock sliders, and was not impressed. personally, i like the texture and quality of the roll on bed liners. i used rustoleum's roll in bed liner on my cj's original body tub; it was ok for the $$ but i didn't like the texture and the quality left a lot to be desired. i used herculiner on my tj tub and LOVE it. i am going to do my cj's "new" tub this spring. i plan on using herculiner, but am also batting around the idea of the duplicolor roll on liner. the spray on stuff is ok, but prep work (like any paint, liner, etc,) is crucial.

Firemedic730 I did the same thing with the rustoleum t.b. liner in my tub. Its help up well.just clean clean clean before you spray. Scuff the clear coat as well. I used TSP from Lowes to wipe the tub down with. Then alloy the coats. I dud the roll bars as well and its held up great and no fading so far. Good luck.

When I did the whole tub.. Multiple coats about 3 1/2-4. Used my leftovers on headlight bezels. Then bought 1 more can and did thin coat under fenders and did glove box.

I used rusto plastic paint to do my plastic interior so far holding up good!

That brand make works wonders. It's so addicting!

jeeperharmon Im about to do it to my front tube bumper tomorrow. ill show pics after

GrNMoNsTr--93YJ I'm the one Wrangler06 was talking about who used the Rustoleum on the wheels, bumpers, and soon a couple coats on my flares and other accents on the Jeep. I originally used Duplicolor but it didn't hold up to my expectations except on the hood. I found the trick is a good sanding for your prep then take a damp cloth and wipe away all the dust before spraying. and when you do get to spraying make sure to hold the can back pretty far and just give it a light coating. If it gets too thick then it dries smooth. That is my complaint about the duplicolor. However I found it for 5 bucks a can today at Harbor Freight. Rustoleum is perfect in my opinion. Better spray nozzle that works at any angle even upside down, better texture, and doesn't matter where you hold the can it always dries with a nice texture.

CJS98TJ Good thing about it it's a rattle can touch up on the go!

Firemedic730 Let me know how the truck bed liner holds up on the fenders. I was thinking of painting mine with it and going along the bottom of the doors and up around the back and stooping at the tailgate. Just not sure how well it will hold up or how all the mud will wash off.

i heard the same thing ..i cleaned and sanded them and it stuck really well but i only put one coat, the only part that peeled off was where a went muddin like 2 days later and the spots where the mud stuck to them peeled the liner off when i sprayed it cuz it was so hard to get the mud off lol i think it will do fine after a few coats..we'll see lol if not im just gonna sand um down and flat black um

Firemedic730 I took the headlight bezels out today. Scuffed, cleaned and primed them before painting them with Rustoleum truck bed liner rattle can. Turned out good. Much better than the chrome ones I think.

Firemedic730 Looks good on the grill and fenders. Think I'm going to spray me fender flares and headlight bezels this weekend.
02-17-2011 06:01 PM
sonofabeach I used Duplicolor rattlecan bedliner on my Jeep's interior a few years back and it's still doing well. I may even have a Rustoleum brand on there too.
Just a couple of days ago I did my grill and metal fenders.
I love this stuff.

Firemedic730 I pulled the carpet out of my TJ last fall. Prepped and sprayed the whole tub, roll bars and both bumpers with the rustoleum t.b. liner. Has held up very well between throwing fire gear in the back, the kids and the dogs. I just prepped real good before spraying in on.
02-17-2011 01:33 PM
Peepers I did my bumpers in it. About 3 cans for a good double coat.
02-17-2011 01:20 PM
CJS98TJ Yeah I used it. It's not too bad at all not nearly as thick or durable and a rhino line but definately cheaper I used it for the inside of my jeep, wheel wells, and headlight bezels. It help up on the wheel wells till I went in deep mud and was power washing for 25 minutes. The color stayed but the texture kinda went away. So I resprayed for texture haha
02-16-2011 11:46 PM
Wrangler06 one of my friends who is also on here used it for a ton of stuff on his yj including bumpers his wheels, it looks awesome and has a good rough texture, gonna be gettin some soon to do a few things for mine as well
02-14-2011 01:03 AM
BigEZ I used the rubberized rusto undercoating for my wheel wells last october...seems to have held up very well to this winter's pounding
02-14-2011 01:00 AM
Mike5087 Will do! I work out of town and I'm waiting on a front bumper from a friend who is currently in Thailand! So it will be a few weeks before i get into it but i will once I'm done!
02-14-2011 12:50 AM
H2_recoveryteam Yea i was happy for the price thats for sure. And i think it will take some abuse too plus its easy to touch up. Goodluck! Post up some pics when ur done.
02-14-2011 12:34 AM
Mike5087 Sweet! Yea I planned on just using it for small little tweaks. Nice to see that it works pretty good especially for the price!
